Academy to return to British GT4 in time for Silverstone round
Reigning British GT champion squad Academy Motorsport will rejoin the GT4 grid for the midseason championship races at Silverstone and Spa.
The Pershore-based outfit, which scored the GT4 class teams’ title last season, will field a single Aston Martin Vantage GT4 for Swedish racer Dennis Strandberg who competed alongside Will Moore in one of the team’s two Vantages last term.
The GT4 grid will expand for both the Silverstone and Spa events with the European GT4 Series joining the field.
Team boss Matt Nicoll-jones, who is searching for a team-mate for Strandberg, said: “With there looking to be up to 55 cars on track, we just had to enter to show what the team and the Vantage can do in the right hands and have fun.”
